Prestonians looked skyward between 2.40pm to 2.55pm as the plane made the Northern leg of its farewell tour.

A final slight is now planned towards the end of October but the plane, which was introduced during the Cold War, delighted military fans.

Video footage from Benjamin Robinson of the plane at Lea Gate.

It was also pictured as it banked over Samlesbury.
